    So in the back of each of the comics that come packaged with wave 2 of CW deluxes there is a page of design sketches/prototypes/colour layouts.

    What's interesting is the design for Offroad has a completely different head, and one thats not First Aid's either…

    Could this be the design for the upcoming deluxe Ironhide?

    I was hoping he'd have First Aid's legs, doesn't seem like the case.

    Not that I could see. Breakdowns clearly indicates how his fist/foot weapon attaches to form Sunstreakers roof mounted engine, but the design sketches are basic blocks, with no specific character detail.

    If this is Ironhide is it so wrong that I'd want him in RID Spychanger colours?

    It does look good... I hope they use the First Aid version of the mold, though... IF it happens...

    That mold was originally designed to be Ironhide though. I'm looking forward to this figure, never got a universe Ironhide.

    not bad for ironhide?.. really? the only resemblance he has of ironhide is his head..

    i mean, they couldn't have at least made his chest close to looking like a proper ironhide? this is like the first time they had the ability to sculpt a more accurate ironhide chest since it's not a pivotal part of the exterior of his alt mode.

    i wasn't a fan of this full on repaint money grab combiner to begin with.. but this just makes it all the more obvious that that's what it is.

    Agreed--unless we also get a Ratchet. I'll accept a pickup-Ironhide if we get variety out of the deal.

    Not sure how you could put a van windshield here. There's no hinged chestplate built into this mold and the combiner plug needs to swing out from the middle.

    It's Classics. Classics is always (with some exceptions), "lets give the repaint a new head and call it a day"

    You're complaining about his chest not being G1 enough and ignoring that he's a combiner when the G1 character never was and this toy has combiner junk all over?
